Lyrics

Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
Checkin' up on my baby
All those nights spent out of town

Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
So many nights and days
I have been out of this town

Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
So many nights and days
I have been out of this town

Checkin' up on my baby
Find out what she's putting down
So many nights and days
I have been out of this town
I'm gonna come home to her
Show her where it's at
And after I do that
I'm gonna leave this place
And I'm not gonna ... don't blow it now, don't blow it now
Keep it right here
Easy

Oom bam bam
Oom bam bam
[etc]
Feels so good
I get the feeling baby
And let me take it on home

  • Checkin' Up

    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    Checkin' up on my baby
    All those nights spent out of town

    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    So many nights and days
    I have been out of this town

    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    So many nights and days
    I have been out of this town

    Checkin' up on my baby
    Find out what she's putting down
    So many nights and days
    I have been out of this town
    I'm gonna come home to her
    Show her where it's at
    And after I do that
    I'm gonna leave this place
    And I'm not gonna ... don't blow it now, don't blow it now
